Rest Day……

What do I do?  Today is a rest day.  ALL DAY.....what am I supposed to do?  I'm used to being at the gym everyday and working out or doing something.  Our Friday softball league looks like it is not going to happen so that leaves me with NOTHING to do all day.  Most people would love this but I feel lost.  I slept until 7am which is abnormal so I don't know what to do.

I feel good after this week's first training session.  Nothing major hurts, just a little soreness in my left hamstring that if I had stretched properly would most likely not be there.  I have to make it a point to stretch more often.....there you go that is what I can do today.  Get more flexible.  Stretch a little and help relieve that soreness.  Sounds good to me.

Another idea that Karen and I spoke about last night is to take my bike in to get the bars wrapped again since they got killed on the MS ride.  I will also take Coach C's advice and have the aero bars fitted to my bike and I.  At the same time I'll have them install a cateye on the bike and might as well shop for a new tri bike and see how that goes in terms of cost.  I'm looking at $1500 to $2500 to spend knowing that I can get a Blue down in Austin for $2500 so let's see what RBM has to offer in that price range.

Outdoor kitchen is 95% done.  The mason work is all completed with just the electrical to go but we could BBQ tonight if we wanted to on the new kitchen.  We do have to look for barstools that would compliment the look of the kitchen along with the firepit, pool and dining table.  The backyard is coming along nicely and we will talk to the landscaper about having the grounds cleaned up a bit right in front of the kitchen so we don't have two mud pits.

Pictures will be on the next post as I have to email them from the blackberry.

Can't wait to have great parties over here after all the training.  Grilling up chicken and turkey sausage and the occasional red meat.  Veggies on the grill and pineapple and peaches for dessert on the grill.  Going to be an awesome summer at the Baha Oasis.

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
